His intimate familiarity with the laws and business cultures on both sides of the Atlantic has earned him the role of trusted adviser to both overseas and U.S. clients seeking to realize their aspirations and achieve success in their investments and operations in places beyond their own backyard.

A successful international multi-lingual attorney, Hans describes himself mainly as an “interpreter of cultures.” He guides overseas clients of all sizes — and in virtually any kind of business — through a U.S. legal landscape and business environment that many find challenging and confusing. And he serves his U.S. clients equally effectively as they prepare to enter the European markets. These clients value Hans’ innate sense of what matters, or what could pose a challenge, to the business owner who wishes to find success in a new and unfamiliar market.

Hans’ pedigree includes legal studies at top-ranked universities, and law practice at premier law firms, in both Europe and the United States. This allows him to bring to all matters a deep and broad understanding of both civil and common law legal systems.

In his international legal practice, Hans advises on the following:

  • Acquisitions
  • Divestitures
  • Joint ventures
  • Corporate finance transactions, including early-stage financings
  • Commercial transactions
  • Establishment, growth, and development of U.S. operations

Hans also counsels his clients on issues of corporate governance and public disclosure and on general corporate matters. He is regularly asked to serve as outsourced General Counsel for the U.S. affiliates of his European clients, advising local management in all legal matters arising from their business operations in the United States.

Hans brings to all matters he handles the perspective of an attorney with a thorough understanding of both civil and common law legal systems.

He is a frequent speaker in Europe on legal issues with particular significance for the U.S. operations of foreign corporations, including product liability in the United States and ways to minimize it through legal and practical measures.
